Convenient Location

This is our second time coming here. The neighborhood isn't too bad. Staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. Breakfast included cereal, juice/coffee, and waffles. Parking was tight, but at least I felt safe leaving it there. We'll be using this place again in the future.

A place to sleep

I called and let them know I wouldn't be there till around 1 am and they held my room. The hotel was packed and the parking lot was full. There was no noise and the personnel at the front desk was pleasant.

It has all the basics but basic they are

The continental breakfast was the most basic I have ever seen. The soap is tiny, water barely warm, one stained movable (barely) chair, no alarm clock, worn furniture and remote for an old boxy TV taped to hold batteries. If you are not easily bothered by such details then the view of downtown is spectacular and the location and the price are good. Fridge and WiFi.

Great location with a great value... If you are exploring the LA area and not in the hotel much, it's definitely worth it!

Just a place to sleep

I need a place to sleep and this is minimal accommodation. Pluses are continental breakfast, free wifi, refrigerator in room near the 101. Negatives are graffiti on furniture, lopsided mattress. broken toilet paper holder,

Never, Never Stay Here!!!

Where to start? I would strongly suggest you not stay at this hotel. Trust me on this. Don't let the positive reviews fool you. Those people were either drunk, or family of the owners. Pay the extra $20 and find a chain like Hampton, Marriott, etc.. Stinky rooms. A combination of urine and a rest home. Matresses and pillows have stains. The bed blanket had marks, stains, or holes. Carpet is awful! The vanity is bad. No remote for the TV. Not enough parking. Don't let the free breakfast fool you. Cold cereal, but no milk. Ran out of donuts and didn't offer to get more. The pool was cloudy and full of debris. Worst of all, the service. Pete (supposedly the Manager) was rude! He has forgotten that he is in the customer service business, and that the customer comes first.
